  • To comply with regulatory requirements and any self-regulatory schemes.

As a part of our standard business practices, we may transfer your personal data to organisations based in countries that have not been granted an adequate decision under the General Data Protection Regulation.

These might include where the data transfer is necessary in order to fulfil a contract between us and yourself, where we have received your specific consent after having made you aware of any risks involved, or where contracts are in place between us and the third-parties involved that ensure the recipient organisation has a suitable standard of data protection in place.

How long will Silver Swan Recruitment keep your Personal Data?

We will keep your personal data only for as long as required to achieve the purposes for which it was collected, in line with this privacy notice.

The following criteria are what determine the period for which we will keep your personal data:

  • Until we are no longer required to do so to comply with regulatory requirements or financial obligations.
  • Until we are no longer required to do so by any law we are subject to.
  • Until all purposes for which the data was originally gathered have become irrelevant or obsolete.
  • Until it has been requested that we no longer process the data and that it is erased; in some cases, where there is a remaining relevant or legal reason why we are required to keep this data, we may opt to restrict the amount of processing being conducted to what is absolute necessary rather than erase it.

Your Rights, Our Responsibility

There are several rights granted to you immediately upon providing us with your personal information; some of these are mentioned above. We’d like you to know that at Silver Swan Recruitment we take your rights seriously and will always conduct ourselves in a way that is considerate of our responsibility to serve your legal rights

The Right of Access

This grants you the right to confirm whether or not your personal data is being processed, and to be provided with relevant details of what those processing operations are and what personal data of yours is being processed.

If you would like access to the personal data we have about you, we ask that you contact us using the details below.

The Right to Rectification

This one is fairly straight forward; if you notice that the data we have about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you may request we rectify the mistake. We will make every effort to respond to requests of this type immediately

The Right to Erasure

Otherwise known as the ‘right to be forgotten, this gives you the right to request your personal data be deleted.

This is not an absolute right; if you were to request that we erase your personal data, we would erase as much of that data as we could but may have to retain some information if it is necessary.

Where we have received a request for personal data to be erased, if it is necessary for us to retain some of that information we shall ensure that the remaining data is used only when and where it is absolutely necessary.

The Right to Objection

The right to object is a basic freedom all democracies enjoy. If you wish to object to the way we use, or have used, your personal data you may do so freely.

The Right to Complain

We will always try to maintain the highest standards and encourage the confidence our customers have in us as an organisation. To achieve this, we request that any complaints be first brought to our attention so we can properly investigate matters. If you would like to complain about Silver Swan Recruitment to a regulatory body, you may do so by contacting your local data protection supervisory authority.
